Business Grand Rounds: Experiences of Faculty Teaching with Student-Written Cases

We have found that teaching with student-written cases heightens engagement through increased student ownership of the learning process from beginning to end. Faculty teaching using student-written cases can facilitate learning from situations that have been managed well as well as those that have been managed poorly. We have used student-written cases in a variety of courses for several years, adapted in different ways to suit learning objectives. Each panelist will share their experiences in a discussion for faculty who often teach using cases, faculty who generally do not use cases, and faculty who are curious about the potential of student-written cases in their courses.
